Jerusalem Day

Read the Israel National News report on the countrywide celebrations that start tonight:

Jerusalem Reunification Day – the day marking Israel’s return to the Temple Mount, the Old City , Mt. of Olives, and the areas that became Ramat Eshkol, Gilo and more during the Six Day War in 1967 – is increasingly being celebrated not only in Jerusalem. In fact, over 80 cities around the country will mark the occasion with marches and otherwise, this Tuesday night and Wednesday.

These nationwide commemorations – the first time, in most cities – are being organized and coordinated by theMerimim et HaDegel(Raising the Flag) movement, in a campaign named, “We are All Jerusalem: Celebrating Jerusalem Throughout the Country.”
